The punishment of 2018 FIFA World-Cup winning captain Hugo Lloris has been confirmed after he pleaded guilty of being double over the legal limit on his drunk driving charge.
The 31-year-old Frenchman, who captains the north London side, was also banned from driving for 20 months after he admitted a charge of drink driving at Westminster magistrates Court on Wednesday.
But Lloris's dream turned into a nightmare when his Porsche was pulled over for a routine stop in central London at 2:20am on August 24.
The court was told the Spurs goalkeeper provided a sample containing 80 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.
Prosecutor Henry Fitch said police in an unmarked auto spotted Lloris' vehicle driving at 15mph in a 30mph zone. They found vomit in the auto after stopping him.
David Sonn, the lawyer representing the player in court, says "the spectacular fall from grace is not lost on Mr. Lloris".Читайте также: Meghan Markle's half-sister called her a "Ducha**" in Twitter rant
Hugo Lloris is expected to be picked for Tottenham's blockbuster clash with Liverpool if he is fit, despite admitting to drink-driving.
"Drink-driving is completely unacceptable, I take full responsibility for my actions and it is not the example I wish to set".
Inside, the details of the case were heard, where it was reported that Lloris had "vomited" and "had to be helped from his car" after being stopped by police. He had initially booked a taxi but it cancelled, prompting Lloris to drive - something described by Mr Sonn as "the first of a number of unwise decisions". "He made a first mistake - he chose to drive".
She said: "This is a very serious offence, as you know".
Lloris has made 207 appearances in the Premier League since joining Spurs from Lyon in 2012.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
